Copy Editing/Proofreading -
This isn’t your average, ordinary proofread!
Through my copy editing services, I’ll perform a thorough proofreading treatment of your manuscript, including:
- Catching and correcting any grammatical and typographical errors
- Reducing sentences and phrases as needed
- Removing repetitious words, lines, and other text
- Addressing any larger, more significant issues
The main goal of my copy editing services is to prepare your manuscript for final publication. That’s why I go the extra mile to make any applicable rewriting and revision improvements. I’ll also provide you with a brief summary of other issues that can be addressed to help improve your work (for example, plot and character development, story structure, etc.).
Developmental Editing - $0.03/Word
Through my developmental editing services, I’ll address such major issues as plot development and inconsistencies, character improvement, story structure, and the overall presentation of your work. This is a detailed, intense level of editing that could involve significant rewriting and restructuring, but it’s all designed to make your manuscript as strong as possible.
After I’ve completed my developmental editing treatment of your work, I’ll perform a full line edit and proofread of it to enhance your manuscript further and make it ready for final publication.
Line Editing -
My line editing services include two separate rounds of work on your manuscript.
1st Round: I’ll perform a quick, yet thorough review of your manuscript, identifying any major issues that need improvement (for example, redundancies or inaccuracies in the text, maintenance of tone and voice, general story analysis, etc.). My comments will address the major issues in your work that can benefit from some rewriting enhancement.
2nd Round: I’ll perform a comprehensive line edit of your manuscript, including all of the following:
- Sentence structuring and clarity
- Improving word selection
- Plot development
- Dialogue strengthening
- Final proofreading
After both these rounds of editing are completed, you’ll have a cleaner, more enhanced manuscript, ready for final publication.
SOME OF THE BESTSELLERS I'VE EDITED
I edited my first manuscript 20 years ago, and I've been hooked ever since. I hold a BA in English and an MFA in Creative Writing, and I've worked for both indie presses and the Big Five. I prefer a good romance tale, but my editing touch has helped improve everything from dystopian YA thrillers to heartrending memoirs. Many books I've edited have found their way onto various bestseller lists and received numerous awards.
When not editing, you can find me at a remote backwoods lake, snuggled amongst nightcrawlers and fishing lures.
